Welcome to Center for Sustainable Change

We want people in communities around the globe to live and act knowing that wisdom and peace are innately present in every human being.

Our mission is to establish and support a collaborative world-wide network of individuals and groups who are introducing an understanding of the Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought via locally-led community change initiatives.

Our work is based on three decades of successfully applying a Principles-based, innate health psychology to communities across the United States. Understanding the Principles helps people to rapidly shed insecurity, fear, and the biases and prejudices of the past, and to more fully harness their innate goodness, creativity and wisdom; to create a world of unforeseen possibility and sustainable change.

    Amanda O'SheaAmanda O'Shea

    (Jávea, Spain)

    Originally from West London, Amanda now lives in sunny Spain where she is an active member of the local community. She is a proud mother of two children, two dogs and one campervan. She is fascinated by nature, addicted to chocolate and spends most of her time just talking about LOVE really. With both her children happily on their own exciting paths, Amanda is now dedicated to her rapidly expanding business of developing "The Serendipity Experience." TSE is committed to personal and business development and education through sharing one of the biggest secrets in wellbeing.

    Amanda was introduced to the Principles through Sheela Masand in 2012 which led to three years of training with Jack Pransky and many other amazing teachers.  She loves to work one to one with people in the great outdoors walking, talking, exploring nature, dining in offbeat eateries and picnicking. She also runs small groups known locally as Happyology Gatherings and delights in organising bespoke retreats in Spain and internationally. Along with her current interest in working with leaders of the community and from the positive and ever increasing feedback to date, life is looking very interesting indeed; for Amanda, TSE and most especially for all those involved.

    In 2015, the owner of a local radio station heard Amanda being interviewed and was instantly drawn by the message she was sharing. This led to the opportunity of presenting her very own weekly radio show. Amanda leapt at the opportunity and the "Happy Hour" show was born. What a gift; to be able to share with the community this profoundly effective inside out understanding. The audience response to her regular Friday evening show reflects her infectious joy, spreading this gift across the airwaves far and wide as she accomplishes her mission – to help all of us fall back in love with life! How lucky are we?
